Flower Fairy Ball Gown Greeting Card

This card is another result of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  I took a big silk gerbera flower and pulled it apart.  I cut one of the layers in half and wrapped it around a die cut of a dress form to form the skirt of the dress.  The rest is pretty straight forward.  I'm always picking up sale items from fabric places for the flowers which most of the time can be cheaper than some of the paper flowers on the market.  I have a total of $1 into the flowers on this card.

Heres the card.  Thanks MMSC for inspiring me.  I needed some heat under my seat!
